We recommend that customers notify the City of any service need at least 2 business days in advance to ensure completion. City personnel must have access to your utility meters at all times to change service or take readings.
Open a new service account
Please contact the Utility Billing Division by phone or in person and indicate the day service should begin. A $40.00 establishment fee is required to initiate service. A security deposit of $120 for residential service and $200 for commercial service will be required for water and sewer service. This deposit may be waived if a letter of reference can be provided from a previous utility company with 12 months of good pay history or if there are 12 months of good pay history with the City for a previous account.
Close an existing service account
Please contact the Utility Billing Division and indicate the day service should be terminated. There is no fee to disconnect. A final statement will be mailed to the forwarding address the customer provides.
